WINNER BEST DIRECTOR - 2007 PALM BEACH FILM FESTIVAL
(DUTCH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES)


Like Bend It Like Beckham, this film explores the tension between parental vicarious living and the offspring’s own dream. Suppose you are born as one of the eleven sons of a father, Rienus Dros, whose ambition in life is to have his very own soccer team… Johan, played by 24-year-old Dutch heartthrob Michiel Huisman, must tell his family that his ambitions and dreams lead him in a different direction. Though the boys make up a complete team, Johan defies them all by wanting to be a singer. This is a delightful comedy (with music) about romance, a budding musician, his family of soccer players and falling in love.
